Takhte siah

Trailer
Directed by Samira Makhmalbaf
Iran, 2000
Drama

Synopsis

In Northern Iran, close to the Iraki border, a small group of persons walks painfully, carrying big blackboards on their backs. They are schoolmasters looking for pupils. Quite an utopian initiative in a war-torn region where people’s major concern is mere survival.
